Starting Pitching Matchup

The Miami Marlins will send out Ryan Weathers here and Weathers is 2-4 with a 3.49 ERA and 46 strikeouts this season. In his career, Weathers is 0-1 with an 8.00 ERA and 3 strikeouts against Arizona. The Diamondbacks did not have a starting pitcher announced at the time that this article was posted.

Miami Marlins Recap

The Miami Marlins come into this one looking to bounce back after a 3-2 loss to the Diamondbacks in Saturday’s matchup, putting their series win streak on the line after series wins over the Brewers, Mets and Tigers over the last week and a half.

Marlins Struggling At The Plate Despite Recent Wins

Bryan De La Cruz leads the Marlins with 54 hits including 9 doubles, 9 home runs and 25 RBIs while Josh Bell has 7 doubles, 6 home runs and 25 RBIs of his own. Jazz Chisholm Jr. has 50 hits with 9 doubles, 7 home runs, 26 RBIs and a team-high 9 stolen bases while Jesus Sanchez has 6 stolen bases as well this season.

Why the Miami Marlins will win

  • The Diamondbacks have lost each of their last six day games against NL East opponents following a home win.
  • The Marlins have won each of their last four games following a loss.
  • The Diamondbacks have failed to cover the run line each of their last eight home games against teams that held a losing record.
  • The Marlins have covered the run line in each of their last five road games.

Arizona Diamondbacks Recap

The Arizona Diamondbacks come into this one fresh off of their win in Saturday’s matchup. A win here would give the D-Backs back-to-back series wins after knocking off the Dodgers in a four-game set earlier this week.

Diamondbacks Inconsistent In Their Own Right

Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 58 hits in addition to a .280 batting average and 12 doubles with 10 home runs and 27 RBIs while Lourdes Gurriel Jr. also has 6 home runs and 28 RBIs as well this season. Corbin Carroll has a team-high 9 stolen bases while Eugenio Suarez has a team-high 58 strikeouts this season. Christian Walker also has 10 home runs with a team-high 33 RBIs of his own this season.

Why the Arizona Diamondbacks will win

  • The Marlins have lost seven of their last eight road games against National League opponents.
  • The Diamondbacks have won each of their last six Sunday games.
  • The Marlins have failed to cover the run line in each of their last 10 day games against NL West opponents.
  • The Diamondbacks have covered the run line in each of their last six Sunday home games against National League opponents.
  • The Marlins have lost the first inning in each of their last three day games against National League opponents.
  • The Diamondbacks have led after 3 innings in each of their last five day games against National League opponents.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs Miami Marlins Prediction

I’m on the Diamondbacks here. The Diamondbacks normally hit lefties better as a team, and the inconsistent offense for the Marlins makes it really hard to back them with any sort of confidence. I’m also not much of a Ryan Weathers fan, never have been, and I think the Diamondbacks get to him in this one and secure the series win. It’ll be interesting to see what the Diamondbacks do from a pitching standpoint in this matchup, but I’ll roll with the Diamondbacks regardless here.
